The home also has the benefit of an additional detached annexe building which provides a further bed/sitting room and en suite shower room giving the property a great deal of versatility for a variety of purposes. Whilst ideal as a large family home or for a family home with a dependent relative, the property is currently used as a high quality and very successful holiday let.

The gardens and grounds are mainly level and offer a great deal of privacy and seclusion and amount to approximately 0.16 acres. Access to the property is through an electrically operated gate and there is plenty of off road parking for several vehicles. The gardens back on to open rolling farmland and enjoy the extensive and picturesque views down the valley and towards Woolacombe Bay, the rugged coastline and the ocean beyond and are a great vantage point for the spectacular sunsets that light up the bay throughout different times of the year.

The villages of Woolacombe and Mortehoe sit on the rugged North Devon coastline and amidst surrounding National Trust land. Mortehoe is a popular picture post card village which has two public houses serving food, a Post Office/general stores, tea rooms, Church and takeaways. Woolacombe is famous for its renowned golden sand surfing beach which has been voted best beach in the UK on Trip Advisor in recently years. Many of the visitors flock to the area throughout the year but especially through the busy summer months. The village has an array of facilities which include a variety of small independent shops, a selection of cafe, bars and restaurants to suit all pockets and tastes, a medical centre, Pharmacy and a Primary School which continues to hold the 'outstanding' rating from OFSTED. As well as the main stretch of golden sand there is also Barricane and Combesgate Beaches which have rock pools to explore, with the former having a kiosk selling Sri-Lankan curries throughout the summer season! The surrounding National Trust land provides miles and miles of walking with some of the finest coastal scenery on offer. There is a variety of leisure facilities with the best nearby golf courses being the two links courses at Saunton, one of which is at championship standard. Barnstaple is North Devon's main trading centre and approximately 12 miles away with a range of bigger named shops, a rail link and direct access onto the main A361 North Devon Link Road which joins the M5 at junction 27 Tiverton. Ilfracombe is just a short drive along the coast approximately 5 miles away and has plenty of coastal charm a picturesque harbour which is home to the world renowned artist's Damien Hirst's 60ft high bronze Verity statue, the cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 50 miles away with direct rail links to the main line stations in London.


The spacious, bright and airy accommodation benefits from oil fired central heating and uPVC double glazing. An entrance porch leads through into the entrance hallway which has the stairs to the first floor and a useful store cupboard under. Doors lead off to the ground floor bedroom, shower room/wc and kitchen and glazed double doors lead into the superb living room. Upon entering the living room, which is a very impressive 35ft long room, you are immediately drawn to the view through the room and onto the delightful conservatory and the outstanding views beyond. The room provides plenty of space for modern day family living/entertaining with dining and sitting areas. Two large openings lead through to the fantastic 20ft long conservatory which is a fabulous light-filled room with the glazed walls perfectly framing the views over the neighbouring countryside and out over the sea and rugged coastline. Double doors lead directly out onto a raised sun deck within the rear garden, providing synergy between indoor and outdoor living.

There is direct access from the living room through to the modern kitchen which is fitted plenty of base and wall cupboards and complimented by integrated appliances which includes a Rangemaster cooker set in a recess with an extractor canopy over, a microwave with a warming drawer under, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. An archway leads through into a games room (also alternatively ideal as a breakfast room), with a useful utility room providing further fitted cupboards, a sink, plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer and space for further freezers etc. A rear lobby then leads out onto the garden.

Moving back across the hallway, there is a ground floor double bedroom which is ideal for any elderly or disabled residents. Likewise, there is an adjacent shower room providing an easy access ground floor facility.

Climbing the stairs to the first floor, the spacious bright galleried landing has doors to four further double sized bedrooms leading off as well as the family bathroom. There is a handy store cupboard and the hatch to the loft space. Bedroom 1 is a generous sized room with a range of built-in wardrobes. The outstanding far reaching views can be enjoyed whilst lying in bed! The en suite shower room has modern fittings. All of the remaining bedrooms have built-in wardrobes with bedrooms 2 and 4 also enjoying the views from the rear out over the countryside and over Woolacombe Bay, the coastline and sea beyond. The main bathroom is a beautifully appointed and spacious room with a contemporary suite which includes a free-standing, centrally positioned bath, a wc and hand basin. Provisions have been made within a recess (wiring in place) for a wall hung television if required.


Located at the front of the property, across the car parking area, is a further unit of ancillary accommodation that is ideal as a small annexe which could be used for an elderly or dependent relative or for teenaged children perhaps. Indeed, this building could be used for a variety of different purposes including a home office, games/hobbies room, gym etc. It could also be used as a stand-alone holiday letting unit to provide a supplementary income for a family living in the house as a main residence. The main area comprises an 'L-shaped' room which is currently set-up as an additional bedroom suite. There is an en suite shower room and wc with modern fittings. Heating within this part of the property is supplied via independent electric panel heaters and there are uPVC double glazed windows and doors.


Outside, Poole Lane is a much quieter, no-through road meaning there is less likely to be much in the way of passing traffic. The property has a great deal of privacy and is accessed via an electrically operated gate which opens onto the large parking and turning area where there should be enough space for 4 vehicles. The front is well-screened by mature bushes and trees. Gated access leads to the rear garden which has been pleasantly landscaped. There is a large raised sun deck which can be directly accessed from the conservatory and is a great space for an al-fresco meal, barbeques, sunbathing etc. There is plenty of space of outdoor furniture and sun loungers. A lower deck provides the base for the hot tub which has been cleverly positioned to take full advantage of the outstanding, far reaching views down the valley and over the neighbouring farmland, over the bay and out to Baggy and Hartland Points and the Atlantic Ocean.

The main part of the rear garden is laid primarily to lawn and extends out to the rear fenced boundary which immediately abuts the neighbouring fields. There is a low maintenance gravelled area which currently provides a children's play area which has a trampoline and swing. Again, the rear gardens are well screened by mature trees and bushes.

Hawthorne Houses is a delightful home, perfect for the larger family, a family with an elderly or dependent relative or to continue its use as a very successful holiday let house. All of the furniture and equipment within the property is available to purchase by separate negotiation if required, ready to continue to trade, and there is an exceptional income to be had from this already very well-established and well-run venture. Further details on the holiday letting income and day-to-day running is available upon request.
